MAPLE GROVE, Minn. (AP) — A mudslide has closed a road in Maple Grove in the northwestern Twin Cities.

Hennepin County officials say an emergency closure is in place on Bottineau Boulevard from 93rd Avenue North to Fernbrook Lane.

Heavy rains and storms over the weekend caused the mudslide.

Crews are working to remove the mudslide so one lane in each direction will be open by Monday evening. Residents are encouraged to find alternate routes.
